're going to be good. the headliner is none other than the first lady herself, michelle obama. and the keynote skooep speaker is a guy you may not know right now, but mark my words, you're going to know him tomorrow, and you're going to know him in probably the next four and eight years. more on that in a moment. but cnn's joe johns is watching all of this live. he joins me. joe, we watched at the rnc when ann romney kicked off that first night, and it was -- really, it was such a great speech. people will say what they will about a party that they don't like. but she was a great speaker, and she had everybody wrapped. and everybody talked about her in the media the next day, which is really the key when it comes to these conventions. nobody had really heard from her before, but they have heard from michelle obama. so is the pressure higher for mrs. obama to really sort of punch through, get her message out there, and get headlines for tomorrow? >> it's true, people have been listening to michelle obama for four years now, even more than that. but actually, i've got to tell yo

. the first lady of the united states, michelle obama, has tonight's most critical job, reminding voters why they liked her husband enough to put him in the white house, and to make the case for giving him another four years. joining us now in our coverage all of this week, anderson cooper, high above the floor. >> our new poll shows why that case is more urgent than ever for the democrat. new numbers on mitt romney's convention bounds. john, what are the numbers? >> anderson, as the democrats open their convention tonight, let's look at that very question. we know governor romney got a one-point bounce out of his convention, not so great, about half what the president got four years ago. not a big bounce. where does that leave us? the democrats' opening night two months from a critical election day. doesn't get any closer than that. 48-48. >> the convention will pay tribute to a champion of health care reform, the late senator edward kennedy, and the woman who stood by his side, vicki kennedy. >> meanwhile, the floor plan is completely different from the republican convention in tampa. sinc

the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president whilhe set certain goals and said this is how many js i want to create, this is what wae concerned,he environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. thatas folks. and th were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, ts speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bounce for either side because i believe this is going to be a continuous conversa

. michelle obama speech's last night reminding voters she had a pretty good speech at the republican convention in tampa. getting back to what paul ryan said on the campaign trail, i think the romney campaign really sees this as a gift of what happened yesterday on the sunday talk shows when those obama campaign advisors were having trouble answering the question are we better off than four years ago. president obama was quoted in usa today giving himself an incomplete on the economy. even though mitt romney has not been out, his campaign has opinion hard at work making hay on those comments. >> thank you. cnn just heard from the head of the navy seals about that controversial book out today about the bin laden raid. wait until you see the scathing memo he sent out to all seals. you'll only see it here on cnn. i was talking to my best friend. i told her i wasn't feeling like myself... i had pain in my pelvic area... and bleeding that wasn't normal for me. she said i had to go to the doctor. turned out i had uterine cancer, a type of gynecologic cancer. i received treatment and we're

for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all

're really la looking forward to the folks -- these are the big names we're seeing. michelle obama will be on tuesday night. she's not actually the keynote speaker. that will be the mayor of san antonio. but she's speaking tuesday night. a lot of people will pay attention to that. bill clinton, of course, wednesday, and he will be the speaker who initially puts the president's nomination in. thursday, of course, vice president joe biden and president obama. those will be their acceptance speeches. and it's kind of interesting. you know who won't be here? hillary clinton. she is traveling abroad as secretary of state. she's on a trip to the south pacific and russia. so she won't be here. she's often stayed above, as you know, the sort of political fray of domestic politics, as she's been secretary of state. but this is the first convention that she will have missed since 1968. >> the tradition is, as secretary of state, secretary of defense, even a secretary of the treasury, they stay away from overt politics, if you will, and as a result, they stay away from conventions on the demo

of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now

obama i talked to him about why he hasn't built more relationships with some of those washington insiders who could have helped get his agenda through. >> sometimes michelle and i not doing the circuit and going out to dinners with folks is perceived as us being cruel. it has more to do with us being parents. when we are in town here in washington in the evenings, 6:30 we want to be at the dinner table with our kids and i want to be helping with their homework. i think sometimes that is interpreted as me not wanting to be out there slapping backs and wheeling and dealing. >> if you are reelected your girls will be older and will probably have their own weekend plans. >> it is already starting to happen. >> do you think you might do more outreach with members of congress? >> my hope is that getting past this election people will have an opportunity to maybe step back and say the differences that divide us aren't as a important as the common bonds we have as americans. some of that i'm sure will require additional effort on my part hopefully. the other side, as well. >> in the docu
